on a compass what are these things used for dial, scales, baseplate, orienting lines and arrow and housing? For {$keyword}

i need help wiv an assignment

Dial has marking of directions such as North, south, east, west , NE, NW, SE, SW etc. I guess scale is same as dial since it should have the direction in degrees 360, with 0 and 360 being North.
The arrow is actually a magnet with North towards the arrow head, such that it points to north when freely suspended.
The base plate is used to hold the arrow or needle with minimum friction and let it move freely to point towards north.
Housing is used to hold everything at its proper place.
Orienting lines I am not sure but I think should be used to find the direction or bearing of a particular object or set direction on ground from a bearing of the map etc
